The Thomaston 4th of July committee announces this year’s theme for the 2017 parade: It’s a “Pet’ -riotic 4th!

The committee had over thirty submissions for the theme contest this year! The ideas ranged from Go 4th Americans to Made in Maine. The ideas were fun, creative and well thought. This made it difficult for the committee to just pick the one winner but as this idea of showing pride for our family and community pets took root – it became a quick winner. Thank you to all the entry participants for your wonderfully thought out submissions.

Congratulations Josh B. for submitting the idea that lead the committee to finalize this year’s parade theme. Josh will be awarded $100.

Think of all the fun ways to show off your dog, cat, horse, cow – or any other family pet. What a fun parade this will be!

This theme is encouraged for all floats, bike entries, walkers, cars, baby strollers, lawn mowers, four wheelers, clowns and even tractors! Show off your pets! Bring them out and parade them down Main Street. The parade viewers will look forward to seeing them all!
